Visit host Ed “Flash” Ferenc at his blog where he reviews each show daily and talks about issues and concerns of the American worker.
Dr. Jill Stein, two-time presidential candidate for the Green Party spoke with America’s Work Force on Nov. 13 about what ranked-choice voting is and how it works.
Dr. Stein first spoke about medicare for all and how it has been gaining traction among Americans over the last few years. She addressed the tired reasons republican lawmakers use to denounce medicare for all and offered up solutions to counter their arguments. Dr. Stein then talked about ranked-choice voting. Ranked-choice voting is where a person ranks their preferred candidates highest to lowest, or just one candidate if that is their only choice. She said this makes it so votes never go to waste and a person could really express their vote in the best way possible. Lastly, Dr. Stein talked about the Green New Deal and how if this method passes, it will help revive the economy, create good quality, high paying union jobs, and help improve climate conditions.
Tom Germuska, Jr., editor of the Cleveland Labor Citizen spoke about the November edition of the Labor Citizen publication. He talked about how Internationally Recognized Apprenticeship (IRAPs) lack oversight on their regulations and standards when it comes to safety and training and how it does not hold up to the quality of training union apprenticeships offer. He also talked about National Apprenticeship Week approaching and how this edition of the Labor Citizen has a 12-page apprenticeship directory of all training centers in the Cleveland area in hopes it inspires people to reach out and learn more about the programs.
AWF host Ed “Flash” Ferenc spoke about the workers for Virginia’s largest transit service going on strike for better wages, and safer working conditions.
